Quatrième de couverture :

'A gripping read which...you will find impossible to put down' Literary Review

When Michael Dillon is ordered by the IRA to park his car in the carpark of a Belfast hotel, he is faced with a moral choice which leaves him absolutely nowhere to turn. He knows that he is planting a bomb that would kill and maim dozens of people. But he also knows that if he doesn't, his wife will be killed.

'This is a novel to mirror the disintegration of our times, the unstated irony of which is that a politics so provincial can breed a writer and an art so universal' Observer

'Characteristically first rate...intelligent...brilliant' New York Times

'The pace never flags; the writing is crisp and taut; the moral crises...are intensely complex and gripping' Irish Independent
